    Julie Orringer's astonishing first novel, eagerly awaited since the publication of her heralded best-selling short-story collection, How to Breathe Underwater, is a grand love story set against the backdrop of Budapest and Paris, an epic tale of three brothers whose lives are ravaged by war, and the chronicle of one family's struggle against the forces that threaten to annihilate it.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I really like this book, and the narrator did a pretty good job overall, but I was appalled at how he butchered the pronunciation of the French and Hebrew terms (I'm in no position to judge his pronunciation of the Hungarian terms). Is it really so hard to find a reader who is knowledgeable about these other languages? or at least, willing to learn how to pronounce a few words? For the record "charoset" is not "chair-row-set"! Ugh.
